Allergy Relief Through Chiropractic Care
While chiropractic care does not treat allergies, it can help combat allergies. In an industrial dominant world, a growing number of people are affected by an array of allergies. Seasonal or not, all allergies are the result of an exaggerated response by the immune system to substances that it recognizes as foreign. Of course, there are medications to help control the allergic response and provide relief from symptoms. There are even medications that will be life-saving in the event of severe allergic reactions. However, in addition to treating symptoms, there are other steps which can be taken to boost the immune system and lessen allergic reactions.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Allergies?
Chiropractic care can help strengthen the immune and respiratory systems by proper communication between your brain and spinal cord. Together they coordinate their functions to properly utilize the immune system to decrease allergic reactions. If there are interruptions in this line of communication, such as a misalignment of the neck, then the power of the immune system is decreased which then causes the increase and sensitivity to allergic reactions. Moeckel Chiropractic Physicians can help restore your alignment and clearly open the communication system between the brain and spine to help prevent allergic reactions by promoting a stronger immune system.
Regular adjustments, especially during the Spring and Fall seasons, helps promote a regular rush of adequate amounts of natural cortisol, an anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the adrenal gland which is necessary to combat allergies. Many allergy suffers are found to have a weak adrenal gland, which with regular alignments can help promote a healthy adrenal gland as it is directly connected to what is called a T9 spinal level root nerve. By helping to maintain balance and regulation of important allergy-fighting hormones, a chiropractor can help allergy sufferers find relief and lessen reliance on anti-histamines.
Remember, if your nervous system is not working right then your entire body does not work right. So, rather than rely on prescription or over the counter allergy drugs, consider chiropractic care as a natural remedy for allergy relief.
